Source drops eight-word Celtic manager update after big development

One particular source drops an eight-word Celtic manager update after a big development came to light earlier in the week.

The ever reliable Sheffield United News report that the Hoops are looking at newly available Chris Wilder who recently left Sheffield United according to reports.

They are keen on getting him to move to Glasgow, saying ‘he could be on his way to Celtic’, meaning he will be back in the game quicker than some expected though expected there no be no shortage of offers made to him.

He has been backed by many a player and pundit to takeover at Parkhead, and he’s also the current number one favourite for the job.

Wilder’s departure from his boyhood club comes after just winning four out of a possible 28 league games this season.

The 53-year-old took charge of 227 games for the Blades, taking them from League One to the Premier League and looked set for European qualification, however the campaign stopped due to the pandemic and his side then saw a collapse in form.

Even though Sheffield United sit bottom of the Premier League table this year, Wilder has still managed to pick up 1.59 points-per game in Yorkshire, slightly up on his career average of 1.57 points-per game.

The Hoops have been linked with a number of managers to fill the Parkhead void left by Neil Lennon, who himself has been tipped to replace Wilder.

Crystal Palace are also said to be open in bringing Wilder to Selhurst Park with their current manager Roy Hodgson’s contract up at the end of the season and no closer it would seem to being signed.

@MichaelHickey on the Celtic manager update development: Not for me, great first season in prem league and then found out 2nd season, but let’s be honest if he was to get the job (or anyone else) there’s nothing we (fans) can do about it we’ll always keep supporting and spending money

@jmcoxford: Lots of people saying no because of his signings. Im sure he has left because they didn’t sign who he wanted
